Tom Behler
 

Thanks again, Jay.

 

I’ll give these instructions a try.

 

Does anyone see the value in keeping the smart tags?

Hello, everyone.

 

I have recently noticed a problem when reading through a list of items in a Microsoft Word document.

 

As I read down through the list, Jaws says alt shift F10, seemingly at random.

 

As you can imagine, this is quite an anoying distraction, and I’m wondering if anyone else has experienced it.

 

I’m using the latest build of Jaws 2019 with Office 2016 on a Windows 10 computer here.  The windows 10 version is 1809.

Re: Silence fusion while using another self voicing program.

 

My memory is correct, but I also thought I'd point you to this webpage for ZoomText Fusion:  https://www.zoomtext.com/fusion-info-en/

Look specifically for the section entitled:  Switching from Full Speech to Speech On Demand or Mute

I also clearly remember that there is some way to have JAWS (or ZT-Fusion) automate the turning off of speech for you when you fire up another self-voicing program.  I seem to recall something about using application profiles, but it's been ages and I don't have the full documentation handy.   That's the way to go if you find yourself frequently firing up self-voicing programs and wanting JAWS/ZT-Fusion to be silent when they have focus.

hello,
wit jaws 19, and before, it's posibel to write a custome label for a link on a webpage.
this is very usefull but te created label is only available for that link in the browser you made the label.
is there a possibility to share that label so that the same link has the same jaws-label in all browsers on the system, and also outlook en excel?
kind regards william

Re: Silence fusion while using another self voicing program.

 

I believe it's the same as JAWS, where INSERT+Spacebar, followed by S, is the Speech ON/OFF toggle.  Whatever state it's in it will flip to the other and stay there until you issue the command again or exit and restart Fusion.

Hey guys,

OK, i need some input here. Running the latest jfw with windows 10.
My keyboard, it has some function keys across the top where you can
control the sound volume and stuff. I can't control the sound volume
any more. I have no idea why. Any ideas what to look for? It's a
wireless keyboard. Any thoughts?

Thanks,

Re: Disk ajectors that are accessibil

Mike B. <mike9902@...>
 


Hi Nino,
 
Here's something that might help, I know it helped my Windows 10 Pro system:
Hi Mike and all,

If the confirmation message appears on the screen but JAWS is not saying it, perhaps it's helpful to know that in Windows 10 balloons was replaced with toasts, which like notifications in the Action Center are handled by the ShellExperienceHost process, too unstable like most UWP apps and areas, unfortunately increasing.
JAWS 17 and newer have a verbosity setting concerning Windows 10 notifications, but it is not as accurate as balloon reading, which was being developed since Windows XP.
If you have Windows 10 Pro, there's a group policy which allows to use balloons instead of new toast notifications.  Try the steps below:

1. Press WINDOWS+R, type the following and then press ENTER:
 
gpedit.msc
 
2. In the Tree view arrow down to, User Configuration, right arrow to open, down arrow to, Administrative Templates, right arrow to open, down arrow to, Start Menu and Taskbar.
3. When you reach Start Menu and Taskbar, tab to the list view.  In the list view, find the following policy: 
 
 Disable showing balloon notifications as toasts

4. Press ENTER to open the properties of this policy, tab to the group of radio buttons and change from, Not Configured, to, Enabled, tab to, Okay, and press enter.
5. When finished, restart the computer for this change to take effect.

By the way, File Explorer and other system and third-party apps which previously shown balloons will do that exactly as in prior Windows versions, including JAWS ability to simulate a left mouse click.

Hope it helps!
Fernando
Take care.  Go Rams!

Hello.


I agree with Brian here.  Unless you've gone in on purpose and turned write-caching on on your external device, removing it without the safe to remove icon is safe.  If you really want it back and the problem is with usb, I'd suggest trying a usb repair program like usb oblivion.  It may cause other issues, so be sure you really want to mess with it.  I was having usb problems a while back, and I threw every usb repair tool I could find at the problem . I don't know what fixed it, but as a side-effect my safely remove icon came back after my attempts.  I suspect usb oblivion did the trick, but I can't be sure.

Hi David,
assuming that you're using a recent version of Windows 10, then:
1. A quick way of opening the Settings app at the main Ease of Access category is to press the shortcut Windows key + U. The settings app opens at the Ease of Access page, with the first category, Display, selected.
2. Tab to the Show notifications for combo box, and select the time that you want.

Re: Disk ajectors that are accessibil

 

Truth be told, as Windows has been configured since at least Windows 7 the "Eject" feature is not even necessary, provided you know that there is not active writing going on at the moment you pull the backup drive plug, jump drive, or SD card out.    And it's usually not difficult to know that you're not writing to a disc unless you were doing something that takes a very long time, like a full system image backup, and even then the external HDD will stop spinning shortly after it's complete.

You can safely just disconnect USB devices that are not actively being written to with no ill effects.   That's what I've done for a very, very long time now.

Re: No font

 

Richard,

           Yes, it can be done without sighted help if you have sufficient patience.  With Windows 10 Version 1809 (and I think this feature came in with 1803) you can fire up Narrator during the install process (CTRL+WinKey+Enter) and it will tell you what's going on.  You do have to be at the stage where it can be activated, which is often several minutes after the whole process has begun.

            I would very strongly suggest using one of the "bootable media" methods, whether that's using the Media Creation Tool to directly create a bootable USB drive or to download the ISO, then burn the ISO to optical media or transfer it to bootable USB using Rufus or similar.

            I will presume you take regular full system image backups along with separate user data backups.  Definitely do both prior to undertaking this task as you want to be able to recover quickly and easily were something horrible to go wrong.   I have not had anything horrible go wrong using this technique, and I've used it way more than once, but this is a "better safe than sorry" sort of situation.

             Given the additional information you've offered I would definitely recommend doing the "install-over install" in hopes that it will correct the issues identified.

Re: No font

Another very strange thing that this idea might solve is that my shortcut keys for programs like Word, Outlook, Excel, etc., work fine if I am running Jaws 2018, but if I launch Jaws 2019, none of them work.  Between that and the no font issue with CSS HTML Validator, has me ready to do this.  Can it be done without sighted help.

            Even though this might seem extreme, really peculiar issues like this tend to be the result of corruption, whether with the Windows 10 install or the program install.  One of the things I've routinely done when I get these inexplicable errors under Windows 10 is to do an "install over" reinstall keeping all existing files and applications.  You can use either one of the two following instruction sets to do that.  Pick the one with the style you find easiest to follow:
